Our dishes are made fresh daily. We have a large variety of delicious seafood, beef, chicken and pork dishes. Our desserts are as special as our savory ones. We are situated on the beach in front of the Belize Water Express at the end of their dock. We cater to locals and tourist alike. We only create dishes of seafood that have been caught and delivered to us fresh from the local fishermen here in San Pedro and you may see them deliver this fresh fish to us while you are enjoying a refreshing drink or eating a meal from our kitchen. You can indulge in some fresh Sashimi or Poki Tuna while sitting here and enjoying a clear view of the second most longest Reef in the world only half a mile away. We do make fresh vegetarian foods as well for the customers that choose not to eat fish or any meats. Please note: We do take credit cards.

Tried breakfast, lunch, & dinner and all were great!

We enjoyed a three daily choices of meal's from Lick's and all left us beyond satisfied. Lost track of how many times our family ordered lobster, but my dad had it everyday we went. Dale was awesome, treated everyone great and took special care of my mom, making sure her drinks were just right... read more

We ate our last meal in San Pedro at Licks while waiting for the water taxi to take us to Caye Caulker. We had been in San Pedro for about 10 days and the only reason we stopped here was because it was the first thing we saw after checking in and dropping our bags at the taxi. We ordered... More

We enjoyed an excellent breakfast at Docs ( formerly Licks). The food was excellent and the location is perfect for people watching. The food had a great presentation. We even got to meet Doc who stopped by and talked to us while we were eating.

Fry Jacks, Belkins and Lobster burritos! True island food with a sprinkling of tourist comfort options. Fresh fruit drinks are also available. Doc is a pleasure, he's a great conversationalist and definitely caters to his guests. He was able to accommodate my friends and I with a table in the surf, good food and loads of laughs. Over the course... More

Now known as Doc's, I highly recommend this tiny beach front cafe (formerly Licks). Plenty of menu items available for breakfast and lunch. I enjoyed perfectly made pancakes with fresh cooked eggs and bacon (called The Canadian on the breakfast menu). The owner hails from Michigan (Go Blue!) and is easy going and friendly.

We had breakfast here and it was pretty good. The owner was super friendly. Best part was watching the hermit crabs scurry around

Right at the ferry dock, a great place to have your first beer and last beer on the island (and some in between as well). Small, cozy & friendly. Had a "North American type breakfast" on our last day...very good and at a reasonable price.

Our small group of 2 Midwestern couples could not have been treated better while visiting Licks in San Pedro. The food was fantastic, but what really set Licks apart was the attentive service and the genuine interest the owner Doc takes in his customers and business. We will absolutely return and we encourage everyone to spend some time at this... More
